I normally hate this kind of stuff, but this is something that has always gotten me. How can we set an arbitrary age where people all of the sudden magically become more mature. So at 12 you magically know how to use a gun? At 16 you magically know how to drive? At 21 you somehow magically can handle drinking? At 18 you can magically handle smoking?
I realize there is no way to limit or regulate the maturity of individuals, but to set arbitrary ages like that is absurd. I'm probably being too much of an idealist, but stupid people do stupid things no matter their age.
And CF, I hope you know I'm not taking a shot at you on this one, more like the ignorance of society as a whole.
I would say 12 year olds is about the age children get a grip on the real world. Plus, its also a physical thing. Guns are rather powerful, and you need a bit of strength to control recoil and such.

I've actually considered naming my next son (If I decide to have another, my current one is driving me insane ) "Lucifer". I thought it would be cool and original. Seriously doubt there would be another "Lucifer" out there. Does that make me a bad person?
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
